Residents escalated their pushback against a proposed medical facility and transitional housing for homeless youths that Hill Country is eyeing on a vacant lot east of Grocery Outlet. They are concerned that when the Center of Hope is built, it will attract sex offenders, drug abusers and homeless people to their neighborhood and three nearby schools. Redding city planners received several calls about the proposal.
Zach Russell and his girlfriend, Ashley Dorman, are back to being a one-car family — and not by choice. For the second time in as many months, Russell's 1994 Honda Accord got stolen from their home off Kenyon Drive in south Redding. Two weeks ago, a man walked past the house, hurriedly walked back, got into the car and pulled out of the driveway. It took all of 20 seconds. That's what footage from their neighbor's camera showed when they woke up to discover the car gone that Thursday morning.
The case of a Redding family told to no longer have contact with U.S. Rep. Doug LaMalfa's Redding office has drawn the attention of a prominent law professor. Eugene Volokh, who teaches free speech law at the University of California, Los Angeles, addressed the issue Wednesday in a Washington Post commentary over whether repeated and unwanted communication to government offices can be prosecuted.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
